I am an Adjunct Research Fellow in the Faculty of Social Sciences, Media, Film, and Education at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne. My creative and research specialties are in visual communication and graphic narratives, spanning areas as diverse as workplace health and safety, disability, education, psychology, tenant’s rights, and autobiography.
In 2019 I received national recognition for my research, creative practice pedagogy, and creative foci as a Top 5 Media, Humanities, and Social Sciences Early Career Researcher from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, leading to multiple outcomes across radio, online commentary, and public-facing distillations of research with engagement and impact.
I believe that image-making and graphic storytelling are utilitarian and generative practices, accessible to everyone, and beneficial for positive mental health, creativity, and the facilitation of self-exploration.
